Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Climate change
  • Astronomy

His main research concerns Planetary boundary layer, Turbulence, Richardson number, Boundary layer and Large eddy simulation. His study in Planetary boundary layer is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Shear velocity, Global warming, Annual cycle, Barotropic fluid and Daytime. To a larger extent, he studies Mechanics with the aim of understanding Turbulence.

His research investigates the connection between Mechanics and topics such as Meteorology that intersect with problems in Eddy covariance. His research integrates issues of Climate model and Turbulence kinetic energy in his study of Boundary layer. His Large eddy simulation research focuses on Stability and how it relates to Stratified flows, Atmospheric instability, Parametrization and Numerical weather prediction.

His most cited work include:

  • An intercomparison of large-eddy simulations of the stable boundary layer (386 citations)
  • THE ROLE OF THE BARENTS SEA IN THE ARCTIC CLIMATE SYSTEM (244 citations)
  • Turbulence energetics in stably stratified geophysical flows: Strong and weak mixing regimes (139 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His scientific interests lie mostly in Climatology, Planetary boundary layer, Turbulence, Atmospheric sciences and Arctic. Energy balance is closely connected to Climate change in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Climatology. Planetary boundary layer is a subfield of Meteorology that he studies.

His research in Turbulence tackles topics such as Boundary layer which are related to areas like Vortex. His work in Atmospheric sciences covers topics such as Atmosphere which are related to areas like Forcing and Order of magnitude. His Arctic study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Polar vortex, Troposphere, Urban heat island, Environmental resource management and Physical geography.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (41.04%)
  • Planetary boundary layer (42.54%)
  • Turbulence (32.84%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Climatology (41.04%)
  • Arctic (23.13%)
  • Urban heat island (6.72%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Igor Esau mainly focuses on Climatology, Arctic, Urban heat island, Population and Cloud cover. The study incorporates disciplines such as Global warming, Atmosphere, Planetary boundary layer and The arctic in addition to Climatology. His Planetary boundary layer study deals with Energy balance intersecting with Climate change and Precipitation.

The Arctic study combines topics in areas such as Greenhouse gas, China and Sustainable development. The various areas that Igor Esau examines in his Urban heat island study include Polar climate and Earth science. His Cloud cover research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Sea ice and Atmospheric sciences.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Diurnal asymmetry to the observed global warming (100 citations)
  • Seasonal and Spatial Characteristics of Urban Heat Islands (UHIs) in Northern West Siberian Cities (35 citations)
  • Climatology and Interannual Variability of Cloudiness in the Atlantic Arctic from Surface Observations since the Late Nineteenth Century (27 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Meteorology
  • Climate change
  • Astronomy

Igor Esau mainly investigates Climatology, Arctic, Urban heat island, Urban climate and Physical geography. His studies in Climatology integrate themes in fields like Atmosphere, Atmospheric sciences and Cloud cover. His work carried out in the field of Atmosphere brings together such families of science as General Circulation Model, Climate model and Fully coupled.

His research in Atmospheric sciences intersects with topics in Climate change, Energy balance, Correlation coefficient and Precipitation. His Cloud cover research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Global warming, Annual cycle, Daytime and Planetary boundary layer. His Physical geography study combines topics in areas such as Albedo and Oceanic climate.
